Protomen! Now I know you're serious about them being awesome. Mega hot apocalyptian landscape, Sean! All the arms in this piece really sell it.

Peace.

Amazing.

Even though it actually doesn't make sense because Blues was defeated in combat. It is Rock that is the one who fights his brother and kills him. Though I suppose this shows Proto Man in his epic light.

I love this one, it freaking smells like Protomen spirit...

The shadows cover his face and present well lack of caring for his fellow robots and even the humans, even though they aren't represented on the painting.

The presence of rock is evident in this piece.

In fact, it reeks of Protomen-y goodness. That's right, REEKS.

great picture. I havent heared the songs of the Protomen yet though *listens to the Megas a lot*


Lets face it. megaman soundtracks often rock ^^

The protomen don't actually use the soudtracks much, but inspired themselves from them and create rock-operas that retell the story... as they see it!

Definitely woth buying... but don't buy the 8 bit remix edition... probably not worth it.

Give the Protomen your money!

I'll try a few of their songs on youtube first then... for now I'm still a Megas fan first :P. Though I really wish they'd do a song about protoman :(...

Deal, I'll try to listen to some megas in exchange.

michelrpg Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009
I listened to the Protomen songs. And I really do believe the story is awesome, but there's 2 or 3 songs where the music becomes too noisy..

still, the lyrics are awesome. "We are the Dead" is a brilliant find.

for the megas I recommend you to listen to Annihilation of Monsteropolis (airman song), Metal Dance (metalman), Quick and the Dead (quickman), and the woodman song (I forgot the title).

Well, I did listen to those and I can tell you my official comparative opinion.

Please don't take it personally.

My taste is very harsh, so keep in mind that I didn't listen lightly.

Musical talent is something I consider greatly when choosing what I listen to and the Megas seem to lack it.

I think the Megas have the writing talent of children in comparison to the Protomen... The lyrics are so weak it it makes me grind my teeth to listen to it... That's harsh.

What's worse is that they're not writing their own music, at least not totally, and when you listen you can hear really bad notes... Oh well, they'll get better with time.

This has to be the most impressive piece of Protomen fanart I've seen thus far. You nailed the atmosphere of that opera perfectly.

[And you can find the album on Rhapsody. : ) ]
